In this section, you’ll uncover stories and examples of people who have converted sheds and barns into simple, frugal, and very practical little dwellings. For some, it has been life changing.


Have you ever considered how a shed or barn can be outfitted as a tiny or small home? If you have, you’re certainly not alone. Meet some people that have actually done it.

Well, it’s certainly not the only way to have a home for less than $10k, but it’s definitely one of the most affordable options out there if you are fortunate enough to have a place to put it.
